HALLSVILLE -- When two Hallsville squads went at it in Tuesday night’s spring football scrimmage, it was the white squad that came on top with a 21-13 win.
“The purple team went for two on one deal and didn’t make it and later they were trying to drive and score and they threw a pick for a touchdown for the white team,” Hallsville athletic director and head football coach Joe Drennon said. “I thought it went well. The kids had a lot of fun. The coaches had a lot of fun. There was a lot of competition but I thought it went well overall.”
Drennon added he saw a handful of kids step up and play well for each Bobcat squad.
“Actually, I thought Carter Rogas looked good at quarterback on some stuff,” the coach offered. “I think Trey Fulton, Elijah Nicholson and Lion Felder all looked pretty good in the running back spot. I actually thought Tim Wynn did a good job at quarterback as well. I thought he threw the ball well.”
Despite feeling it the next day, the Bobcats came out of spring ball healthy.
“I saw some of the guys this morning and they were all pretty sore,” Drennon said. “They weren’t used to a game like that. You can practice all you want to until you get into those game situations and it’ll be a little different on your body. They were pretty sore but that must have meant that they play pretty hard.”
The scrimmage was played in front of several community members who came out to support the Bobcats.
“I thought that was pretty cool,” Drennon said. “It was kind of a neat setting on our practice field like that, people getting to sit on our practice field like that, people sitting on the hill and get to be close and watch the kids, I thought it was neat. I thought we had a good turnout with the crowd. I want to give props to our cheerleaders for coming out. I didn’t know they were going to do that. They came out and cheered and supported the guys. I thought it was a lot of fun.”
